Chuck Hughes from Garde Manger Opening New Restaurent in Old Montreal?

BlueSteak Dec 1, 2010 12:06 PM

I overheard a conversation in which someone said Chuck Hughes from Garde Manger is in the midst of opening up a new restaurant east of the current restaurant on St. Paul in Old Montreal. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    I can shed a tiny bit of light...it is on St-Paul East near the Bonsecours Market and will be open for lunch as well as dinner. Nit sure what the type of cuisine will be.

      I've been watching Chuck's Day Off and am so inpressed by his food, his expertise and the assured and confident way he cooks while explaining how/why he is doing what he does. He really is a star. We live in Massachusetts but love to travel to Montreal, it is a stunning and wonderful place to visit, everybody is so friendly and very nice and welcoming, you Canadians have a lot to be proud of. On our next visit we will be sure to check out where Chuck is cooking.

        Another success story in old montreal by Dr Hughes :) !
        Secluded for now but great indoor and outdoor venue, music playlist " a la chuck" , good and reasonable wine selection , lots of selection to share , don't miss the "lobster parfait" (to die for )as well as sea bass on edamame, finshed with strawberry snowcone desert.
        oysters etc of course...will need to jog off this calorie extravaganza . staff of course superb !

            Apparently called Le Bremner - "kind of a 'seafood diner,'" Chuck says in a Facebook post.

              The restaurant was named after a vintage sign found during renovations.
              The address is 361 Saint Paul West and much like the Garde's no signage, the street entry entry reads simply RESTAURANT, although the back terrace access is possible through the alley to the Auberge
              Its no diner................

                St-Paul East not West!

                  Oops sorry for the wrong direction
                  I guess after such a great meal my subconscious wanted to keep it a secret :)

                    Is the price range pretty much the same as Garde-Manger's?

                    So it's east? I'd heard that it was in front of Marché Bonsecours, but if you say East, that would place it around St-Pierre street? Is it in the building that's been in renovations forever at the corner of St-Paul/St-Pierre?

                      The dividing line for St-Paul East and St-Paul West is Blvd. St-Laurent. Marché Bonsecours is east of that, and St-Pierre St. is west of it.

                        I was in old montreal on weekend and looking for his resto, no wonder I could not find it! And i must have walked right by it. Who doesnt put a sign on their resto!
                        from facebook site: le numéro de téléphone du Bremner est le 514 544 0446

                          Umm...L'Express and Club Chasse et Peche for starters...does Garde Manger even have a sign - they didn't when they first opened IIRC...

                            I don't think Garde Manger has a sign.

                              L'Express has the name of the restaurant embedded in the stone outside, if I remember well.

                              L'Express Restaurant
                              3927 Rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, QC H2W2M4, CA

                                Yes they do, the stones on the ground, so it's hard to find only in winter :)
